What Is My Relationship To Life?

My relationship to life is to live life to the fullest and collect as many positive impressions in my mind and heart. I try to achieve this by learning and sharing from past mistakes, from present challenges and opportunities. I associate my life with developing compassion, expanding knowledge and deepening my spirituality. Being alive in today’s world, my relationship to life embrace flexibility, technology, surprises, adventure and love.

Occasionally my actions conflict with my relationship to life. This is then the exact moment when I become unbalanced and unhappy. Normally just writing in my journal supports me with clarity and the right plan of action.

For example, I’m invited to a party but I know if I go, I won’t get time to reach my report deadlines. These reports can support me with a flexible life one day. However that one-day is still far away in the future and the party is so close in the present. So the obvious thing to do is to go the party, right? I decide to go, have loads of fun but the next day stress arrives on my doorstep, maybe with a hangover and even some guilt…

Lesson learned: even if I reach my deadlines hastily, not putting my needs first in accordance to my relationship to life was in fact, a wrong move. Damn! 😉

 

What Do You Choose…Life or Death

The idea of writing about death made me quite uncomfortable. The problem around death is not the ignorance but its: UNPREPAREDNESS

Unfortunately most societies are oblivious about the dying process and how we can live with self acceptance, awareness and peace around our own death. Will we become fearless once we accept death? We are aware that society controls us and at the same time we are conscious of our own power and our beautiful, innate qualities. Unfortunately most of us are ignorant of our own power. Something is preventing us from living our full potential, living our ‘Natural Self’. What is that saying of us as human beings?

Religion has taken this job of teaching us about death, our true nature and what lies beyond. If death is such a natural process, then why do we need religion to tell us what will happen? Why can’t our communities prepare and inform us through means of education, workshops, Tv programmes? We can then easily accept our dying process and live with it naturally.

Today, I have accepted my death. What created this realisation? I finally understood ‘impermanence’ and who I am. I wish that my society taught me that. I had to wait many years to find out that I am not this body, I have this body and this speech.  Truth is, now I have this life to live and I am grabbing it with both hands. I am indeed thrilled to experience this wonderful gift from the universe that I am part of, we are all part of.

I choose life equals I choose death. What do you choose?
